Serious injuries can lead to hefty medical bills. That’s why turning to the personal injury lawyers at Edgar Snyder & Associates is so important. Based on your case, we can determine who’s responsible for paying your medical bills and much more.
Injured In A Car Accident?
If you or someone you care about were injured in a car accident, the details related to the crash will largely determine not only if you have a case, but who is liable for paying associated medical bills.
If you were in an accident, you may be eligible for compensation for lost wages depending on the insurance coverage you carry. If you have disability benefits at work, your employer will cover you.
Injured On The Job?
If you've been hurt on the job, the parties liable for paying your medical bills and compensating you for lost wages depend on the details surrounding your injury. In most cases, you will be eligible for Pennsylvania workers' compensation benefits, and in other cases you may be entitled to compensation from a personal injury case.
That said, if a company other than your employer caused your work-related injury, you could have a third-party claim. Examples could be the manufacturer of a defective machine or another contractor working on your job site. These are accidents that result in an injury that occurs at a worksite but are not the responsibility of your employer.
Injured In A Slip-And-Fall Accident?
Slip-and-fall accidents can lead to emergency room visits, time off work and even life-long medical appointments, which is especially frustrating when it was due to the negligence of someone else.
The bottom line is that property owners need to ensure their facilities are free of hazardous conditions such as:
- Wet floors
- Improperly lit areas
- Tripping hazards
This is called premises liability, and there are three basic kinds—homeowner liability, business owner liability, and renter and landlord liability.
